Apple CEO to MIT grads: Tech without values is worthless

Apple CEO Tim Cook has urged graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology not to forget humanity and compassion in scientific pursuits.

But after Cook's search landed him at Apple, he said, he found objective in a company with a simple mission: serve humanity.

"I can not speak on detail on that".

Cook added that while he could not give further details, Apple provided the information promptly once the lawful process is followed.

In his address Friday, he highlighted his company's products and core values as examples of technology that puts people first. Cook didn't specify which attacks led to the company's cooperation.

Cook said that twenty years ago, his search for objective brought him to Apple, when Steve Jobs had just launched its famous "Think Different" campaign.

"[The encryption] doesn't mean no information".

"The reality is the cyber attacks on people and governments. these affect your safety, your security, so its not just privacy".


"When technological advancement can go up so exponentially I do think there's a risk of losing sight of the fact that tech should serve humanity, not the other way around."

Reading from a teleprompter, Cook asserted that solutions to various problems, "from cancer to climate change to educational inequality" will be brought forth with the help of technology.

"I can tell college students are behind it because most of the tweets happen at 3 a.m.", he added, as the crowd laughed. Prior to joining Apple, he was a vice president at Compaq, a now-defunct computer services company.

Cook acknowledged that technology created to connect us can actually divide us. "This is profound. As we get the developer release out we'll be the largest AR platform in the world".

In an interview with Bloomberg, Cook stated Apple has been responding to all data requests from United Kingdom police and added that the United Kingdom has gone through "the lawful process" in order to obtain this data.

Cook believes that any new, low-rate federal tax on USA capital held overseas should be mandatory for all companies and that the proceeds should be used to upgrade US infrastructure, Bloomberg reports.

But Cook suggested that while MIT grads could expect to accomplish great things, a deep sense of meaning may be the hardest thing to achieve in the end.

"We are not going to go through things we're going to do in 2019, '20, '21".
